Love This Mini Album

Hello friends! Melanie here today to share a mini album. I haven't created a mini album in about 7 years but this past month I've been itching to do one, so I challenged myself to create a simple mini album. What was initially a 5 page album turned out to be 16 multi layered mini album! I went all out!!!

My album was created with regular white cardstock, cut into 4 pieces and held together with metal rings. The cover was embellished with a vintage Heidi Swapp chipboard shape, Chic Tags rub ons and paper and a Studio Calico flair badge. I added a lot of sewing to this album and decided to leave thread hanging over the edges, just adds a bit more details to my album.


The inside of the album was embellished with Chic Tags transparencies, snowflakes, enamel dots, clothe pins, chipboard frames, Chic Tags rub-ons, Chic Tags pattern paper, Crate Paper gold resin flowers and some exclusive Chic Tags wood veneers. I would say that 85% of the products used are Chic Tags.



The back cover was simply embellished using the same heart template as in the front but this time as a mask paired with modeling paste, love the subtle effect this creates.


I hope you are inspired to create a mini album, this was an exciting creative process for me, I've truly enjoyed each moment.
